The Lego Batman Flick is Exhausting...
Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson
Director: Chris McKay
I felt like I ran a marathon after this movie! And my fat ass doesn't run! This is a noisy movie so sit in the back of the theater. Not sure why "The Lego Batman" flick is getting the accolades, but I was ready for this one to be over. Obviously a predictable ending and of course Batman and friends are saving Gotham City from all of the villains, including the Joker, Riddler, and a cameo by Superman who shuns Batman by not inviting him to a super hero party. The start of the flick starts off promising with Batman, voiced over by Will Arnett, narrating the opening credits, which are slightly humorous. Batman must deal with his inner feelings over the years being the solo crime fighter. New police commissioner, Barbara Gordon, daughter of Retired Commish James Gordon, voiced over by Rosario Dawson, carries this flick. I admit Chris McKay made Barbara Gordon into a hottie of a lego babe! That sounded so weird.... Anyway, this flick is way too hurried, is loud, and stuck in the proverbial black hole in the sky that ends this dull sequel. Ok for home use, but don't waste $10 bucks!
